New Professors Talk

The University of Newcastle is proud to present its new professors through a dynamic public lecture series, 'New Professors Talk'. 

This series introduces you to the new people in our community and shares the knowledge and expertise of these leading commentators and thinkers. 

The first New Professors Talk for 2015 will be given by Professor Peter Radoll, Dean of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education and Research.

Stone chips to silicon chips: Australia's Indigenous digital divide

In our ever-changing technological world, Indigenous people are increasingly at risk of being left behind. Professor Radoll will share his journey to becoming Australia's leading Aboriginal researcher in information and communication technologies, and explore the digital divide that separates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from the rest of Australia.

Professor Peter Radoll, a descendant of the Anaiwan people of NSW, is the inaugural Dean of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education and Research, and Director of the Wollotuka Institute at the University of Newcastle. He has held various senior roles at the University of Canberra and was a motor mechanic for 11 years before beginning his academic career.
